Video: Kenwood 2013 Double-DIN CD Receivers
Zak Billmeier grew up in southern Vermont and coastal Maine. After graduating from Mary Washington College with a Geography degree he still isn't sure quite what to do with, he eventually settled in the mountains of Central Virginia. He spends his free time chasing his daughter around, taking pictures, gardening and cooking. Zak traces the roots of his interest in electronic gadgets to the Casio wristwatch with a built-in calculator he received as a gift one year as a child. He joined Crutchfield's car A/V team in 2007.

Kenwood's 2013 double-DIN sized CD receivers let you replace many larger factory stereos while keeping your dashboard looking great. And they offer some great features, too, like iPod® and iPhone® controls, Pandora® compatibility, and, depending on the model, built-in Bluetooth® for hands-free calling and audio streaming. Use our vehicle selector to see if they'll fit in your dash.
Zak: I'm at the Kenwood booth at CES 2013 and Matt, tell me about these great-looking double-DIN CD receivers.
Matt: So we'll have two new models for 2013: the DPX500BT and the DPX300U. The DPX500 will feature built-in Bluetooth as well as front USB connectivity for iPod-controlled Pandora as well as iHeartRadio interface. The DPX300U will feature all the same features of the 500 but without Bluetooth. Both units will include a direct fit kit for Toyota vehicles so for application based Toyota vehicles it will be a custom, perfect fit.
Zak: Great. Thanks, Matt.
